Scroll of Dead
Get ready for an encounter with the goddess of destiny on the slot from Play’n GO. Scroll of Dead is taking you on a volatile reel journey to ancient Egypt with wild scarab scatters and a free spins round with an extra reel added to the game window and a special expanding symbol that can lead to wins of up to 7,500 times your bet.
Scroll of Dead is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 flexible pay lines as default. During the free spins, the format changes to a 6×3 size with the same number of lines. Wins are awarded for two to five/six matching symbols on a line from left to right. You can face the goddess of destiny on desktop or mobile from 0.01 to 100 credits per spin. The game has high volatility (9/10) with a default RTP of 96.28%. However, some operators will offer it with its secondary settings of 94.28% or even just 91.28%, always check the help files before starting to play.
The path leading to the entrance of the main pyramid chamber serves as the background to the usual Egyptian-style game window. A hieroglyph wall serves as the canvass for the reels which are populated by the Egyptian artefacts and the goddess of destiny Shai, all dimly illuminated by eternal flames.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from 10 through to A, awarding 10x to 12.5x your bet for a single five of a kind as well as 15x to 20x for a 6OAK. They are followed by Ankh crosses, the falcon god Horus, snakes, the goddess of destiny Shai herself. Hitting five on a line will pay 50x to 500x your stake while six yield 100x to 750x.
The scarab is the wild scatter symbol, substituting for all regular symbols and triggering the main feature when three or more land. Having them appear scattered will pay 200x and 500x your bet for five and six respectively. Even better when you hit them on a pay line as they will match the payout for Shai
Scroll of Dead Slot Features
Play’n Go keeps adding more titles to its portfolio of high-volatility slots with the special expanding symbol mechanic as the main attraction. We might be already past a full dozen with Rich Wilde and the Amulet of Dead being one of the latest releases. Well, let’s take a closer look to see what Scroll of Dead has to offer.
There is really just one feature included in the gameplay although it is rather potent. Hitting three or more scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger 8 Free Spins which can be indefinitely retriggered. Before the start of the feature, the scarab will unlock the sixth reel and also randomly select one of the pay symbols to act as the special expanding symbol.
On any free spin and after potential line wins are paid, the special symbol will expand and award a payout for every pay line even when the symbols are not on adjacent reels. You will need three low-value symbols or two high-value symbols in view on a free spin. Wilds cannot substitute for the special expanding symbol. The feature ends when you run out of free spins or hit the win cap of 7,500x your stake
How many more variations of the “Book of…” mechanic will we see before the format is retired? Play’n GO alone has more than a dozen different titles, all with the expanding symbol feature in the free spins. Then there are countless other game providers who released their own games. In essence, all are basically cloning the mechanic that Novomatic made popular with their Book of Ra slot but never trademarked. They all deliver simple yet highly-volatile slotting with decent win potential.
